. amid-all of this in the world, today washington was consumed with two issues. the first was the start of negotiations to head off a deliberate crisis that d.c. created for itself so they could come to a few new deal between the parties and congress on spending and taxes and the deficit. that negotiation started today. the white house said top staffers will be continuing those negotiations that started today even while the president is off on this big historic trip to asia. the other thing consuming washington is the investigation into what happened in benghazi. in the midst of his sex scandal, but the head of the cia david petraeus testified to congress today about libya behind closed doors. we'll have more on that in a moment. but while all of this is unfolding in american politics, globally and in washington, there's a whole other level of things unfolding in american politics that's happening further down the food chain. what's happening there, i think, is rather off the hook. in a way that might be good news for the country. but for now, it's just worth seeing. >> a controversial
dynamic as the old congress, but there's a new optimism in washington about solving our problems. >> we want an agreement. we want an agreement. >> i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. >> i think it's important for us to come to an agreement with the president. >> and that starts with the fiscal cliff. we've sounded the warning. >> job destruction that would happen under the fiscal cliff. >> economic growth is at 2%. this only hurts it. >> on the edge of a fiscal cliff. >> could do some very bad things to the economy. >> but how should you prepare for this scary scenario or for any deals washington makes to avoid it? it's about getting back to basics. taxes, investments, savings, retirement, jobs, the things that made americans secure in the past are no longer guarante guarantees. now a prosperous future depends on knowledge and a solid plan. remember, smart is the new rich. while there's uncertainty in the broader economy, your personal economy can still thrive. washington, wall street, main street, all trying to figure out what the tax bill is going to look like. most republ

are feeling pretty good and the word out of washington today, is a lot of trying to work together. >> well, gary b, actually, i mean, do you know what it means if we fall off the fiscal cliff for you? i don't know, does anybody know? and is that uncertainty that gary k was talking about really the key here? >> i'll go beyond the uncertainty that gary k said. i think it's doom and gloom. brenda, if you walked outside the studio and grabbed ten people off the street, all ten of them, if you ask what does the fiscal cliff really mean? they go, i don't know, but it sounds bad. this fiscal cliff sounds bad, it doesn't sound like a good thing and brenda, when you hear this day after day after day, i think it starts to weigh on consumers out there. it sounds gloomy, it sounds terrible, and when people feel terrible, this is more perception in psychology than anything else, they don't spend as much. i wish i could be as optimistic as susan, when i talk to the the average person out there and including myself, everyone is feeling blah. >> brenda: you're not average, gary. tobin you're shaking your
. but respecting the fact that they did for your own good. david corn is washington bureau chief for mother jones, and joy reid is managing editor of the grio. both are msnbc political analysts. look, let's take a look at some of the stuff from john mccain here. it's been four years since john mccain lost his presidential bid. just ten days since mitt romney lost, but they still are both holding a grudge apparently against the president in their bitter comments this week. listen to romney's conference call about obama's gifts and mccain's complaints about obama ally u.n. ambassador susan rice. >> what the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressive to turn them out to vote. >> susan rice should have known better, and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she should have known better. i will do everything in my power to block her from being the united states secretary of state. >> joy reid, let's go after romney first and the way he's calculating how he lost. now, y

: in washington, they think carefully about the pictures they want to present to the public so this mattered. all four congressional leaders-- democrats and republicans-- after meeting with the president chose to face the cameras together. that hardly ever happens and it reflects the new post-election mood of cooperation. house speaker john boehner called the meeting very constructive. >> i outlined a framework that deals with reforming our tax code and reforming our spending. and i believe the framework that i've outlined in our meeting today is consistent with the president's call for a fair and balanced approach. >> reporter: to republican leaders balance means some higher tax revenues are paired with reductions in spending and changes in entitlement programs. that's a challenge for democrats, but the president seemed willing to move in that direction. >> our challenge is to make sure that we are able to cooperate together, work together, find some common ground, make some tough compromises, build some consensus to do the peoples business. and what folks are looking for-- and i think all of us
. the louis gomer, and to leading doctors here to psychoanalyzed it all. in washington that is a lot. our first guest has a deep understanding of the way the intelligence community works. joining us now, former cia operative, the highly decorated operative who served 23 years in a clandestine service. he worked as chief of station in the middle east and latin america -- let america. the first question has to be, the former cia director saying that he does not know what happened after the cia send over their memorandum. that isn't the one he delivered, and the changes had to be made subsequently. the cia director, by the way, you anticipated when you were on this broadcast a few years ago saying that it had to have originatedin -- the changes, the flow from the white house to the united nations ambassador had to occur either in the state department of the white house itself. >> i stand by that. and the fact is that no one writes those sorts of things that a cia officer would right to my director would write other them at the white house or at stake. remember something. the u.n. ambassador,
to defuse the situation. that is not all washington is doing. let's go to cnn pentagon correspondent barbara starr in washington. barbara? >> the big concern here in washington is a ground war in gaza. there is growing concern that israeli troops and tank forces might cross the border and move into gaza. that is the major escalation that the u.s. does not want to see. so, the calculation now is, what does it take to make hamas stop its rocket attacks into israel and israel feel comfortable enough with that to pull back on the air strikes and pull back on any ground forces that it is assembling near the gaza border. there has been a lot of diplomacy going on. defense secretary leon panetta traveling in asia, calling the israeli defense minister barack. secretary of state hillary clinton firing up the diplomatic phone lines calling israel, turkey and jordan. randi? >> barbara starr in washington, thank you. as you can see, cnn has every angle covered on this story. >>> much more ahead this hour. here's a look at what we have coming up. >>> on the brink of war. as fighting escalates between isr

, the scandal has the entire news-scape in a tizzy. >> the sex scandal that's rocked washington. >> a salacious sex scandal involving the now-former c.i.a. director. >> breaking new details on the fast-moving c.i.a. sex scandal. >> we have to talk about the fiscal cliff but i'm dying to ask you about the scandal because it's all anyone's talkin talking about. >> stephen: yeah. this sex scandal is all anybody in washington can talk about. i wonder why the country is in financial ruin? ( cheers and applause ) well, folks, i may be a news junky, but i also got to have my stories. and this is both. it's like a steamy episode of "general's hospital." ( laughter ) ( applause ) and these days-- these days, information, i spend my afternoons you know plopped on the couch in the housecoat, watching cnn with a virginia slim in bon hand and a box of after 8s in the other. i don't care if the news goes straight to my himself. it is me time. this story has got everything-- a decorated war hero has an affair with his own sexy biographer, who senses the spy master is stepping out on her with a second girlfri
up? let's ask wall street journal columnist bill mcguerin, and analyst steve moore and washington columnist kim strassel. so, kim, the president won reelection, was this the hand of magnimty reaching out to the republicans? >> it's crazy, it's what the president says all the time. if you listen to the press conference, he seems to say the biggest wish list for his liberal partisans has become docile letting these tax rates expire. while the republicans have moved, they are offering revenue, this is a change from their position, while the frame work is potentially there for a deal, the president no compromise, no compromise. >> paul: what's his strategy, bill, here? what is he thinking? obviously, if we don't get a deal we do go off the tax cliff and the with the consequential danger to the economy. >> kim is right, you're right, the math doesn't add up, the politics adds up. $. >> how so? >> i'm afraid what's going to happen we're not only going to get bad policy, a tax increase and so forth. but we're going to-- the republican party as opposed to bad policy are also going to get
damage that america could do itself if washington allows us to go over the fiscal cliff. according to studies, the average household could pay $3500 more in taxes. unemployment in the u.s. which has come down to 7.9% could head back up above 9% by this time next year. the u.s. could join europe which has been hit by a double dip recession. and according to a pugh research/"washington post" poll, you clearly understand the danger of this fiscal cliff. 68% say it will have a major effect on the economy. 21% say just a minor infect. only 2% say no effect. 10% say they don't know which is why you're watching this right now. president obama's solution to all this is to make a deal centered around increasing taxes on the wealthy which will go a good part of the way to raising the $1.6 trillion in new revenue that he wants to raise over the next decade in his attempt to reduce the federal deficit. he wants to let the bush era tax cuts expire. if that happens, the top tax rate on income would jump from 36% to 39%. he likes to say that's where it was during the clinton years. the second top
in washington that his response now is significant in satisfying people who would like for him to express stronger support for israel? >> you know, there has been some controversy, some tension, frankly, between prime minister netanyahu and the president. that's no secret. there was the recent episode where the prime minister went before the united nations andrew that red line, you remember, across that little cartoon bomb. some disagreement about when and where that red line should be drawn with respect to iran's nuclear program. but look, there is no question that any american president, any american government is going to back up israel if it comes to any kind of military conflict with some of its neighbors that wish for its destruction, frankly. and in fact, the senior official on the airplane today said the following about a possible israeli ground invasion of the gaza strip, something that nobody wants to see, but it's a very real possibility as israel quiets ready and prepares for that possibility. the white house official says israel can, quote, make their own decisions about tact
melham, washington bureau chief for al- arabiya; and dan schueftan is director of national security studies center at the university of haifa. gentlemen, one thing i think a lot of people, myself included are wondering how did this flare-up seemingly so quickly. dan schueftan. >> well, since hamas took over we had for a while a thousand rockets per year, then came israeli escalation and-- and it went down to a small number of rockets every year, last year again we came to about a thousand rockets against israel. and this intensified in recent weeks to the point where israel had to take action. israel was saying for about two weeks, i mean people here were dealing with the elections and other things. but it was saying it must lead to a point where either it stops or we will have to take action. when it didn't stop israel took action. >> brown: what do you think happened to build telephone up? >> we have never seen quiet on the border even from 2008 until now. and a few days leading to the israeli decision to take on, assassinate a major military leader of hamas there were skirmishes
sides in israel and gaza and along the border. >>> in washington, our tom foreman takes a closer look at the man power and fire power in the region. >> let's look at how the battlefield is shaping up over in the middle east. here's israel alongside the mediterranean. about the size of new jersey, 75% jewish. the economy is good and unemployment below 7%. gaza very small. only about twice as big as washington, d.c., predominantly palestinian and the economy there is quite bad and unemployment is very high. globalfirepower.com has called israel the tenth most powerful military in the world. let's break that down and see why. they have compulsory military service. that means every young person must go into the military for a while. 176,000 active troops are available and they have about half million that they can call from reserves very quickly. ground sources also very impressive. 3,000 tanks if you count all the artillery pieces and mortar, you get about 12,000 units that can operate on the ground. of course, their air force is formidable about 800 aircraft out there, including some 20
. the terms by which washington assisted the finance and auto industries have been the focus of intense debate but the most contentious example of all is the one on which diana furchtgott-roth, senior fellow and speaker this afternoon focuses in her timely and important new book "regulating to disaster: how green jobs policies are damaging america's economy". in it, she subjects assumptions and policies which led to such ill-fated federal investments as that of the now bankrupt solyndra solar panel manufacturer as well as the a 123 caller battery manufacturer to a withering analysis which we at the institute have come to expect of the oxford trained economist whose chief of staff for the council of economic advisers. sorry. during the administration of president george w. bush. in her book she helps us understand why the failures of such direct investments in private firms are both significant problems in themselves and cautionary tale for those who would have the government rather than private investors allocate capital. the publication of "regulating to disaster" calfs diana's first year as
in the washington studio is paul. professor noll, first of all, what with your activity during the breakup of at&t and what led to that decision? >> the antitrust case was formed during the johnson administration the late 1960's and a presidential task force called the telecommunications policy task force. it concluded the telecommunications industry, the part in federal jurisdiction, should be competitive and made recommendations both -- mainly to the fcc about how to cause that to happen. then when the knicks and the administration can along, the holdover staff of the antitrust division decided to pursue it antitrust rather than it fcc regulation as the means to introduce competition. i was on both the telecommunication policy task force and i was one of the outside economists advising the department of justice during the mid-1970s when the case was actually being shipped. >> professor hausman? >> i did not come into the proceeding until 1982, and thereafter when the antitrust division decided to review it about three years later the effect of the breakup, there was a report that was done, and
officials that we'll see quoted in the "washington post" or "the new york times." those are an effort to kill 10 to 15 individuals with the u.s. police plot against the u.s. so one of two things is true. neutron strikes aren't as accurate as we all told they are or the u.s. is doing something different than what it says it is doing, targeting more than just a 10 to 15 individuals. so what would any initiation and be able to do if al qaeda were to carry out an attack today? if a large-scale ground invasion is foolish in the disaster is and is really table, do they just have another missile search, which referred the same, which doesn't seem to be effective. this is the critique of the jenin battle that has been designed by individuals within the upon the administrator is not dismantling and defeating al qaeda. in yemen, was happening on the ground if al qaeda is expanding and the problem is exacerbated. so while ibrahim finished an optimistic note, although i fell back to earth with a rather pessimistic one. >> thank you, both. before it up into crushing sunni audience, what is to have
a lot of weight in washington. there appears to be no doubt that he believed in crusader. he was hired by united defense to plead its case to congress and the public. i hope people listening to this argument say, you know, look, mccaffrey's been around in uniform for 32 years. he got wounded three times. his son and daughter are both in uniform. he sounds like a thoughtful guy, and he's telling us this program's vital. poussaint: united defense's public efforts were orchestrated by power washington pr firm powell tate. they spearheaded the campaign of the crusader industrial alliance, who stood to lose billions if crusader was cancelled. the alliance paid for an ad campaign and a slick web site which offered talking points, even videos, touting crusader's virtues. it's a campaign, it's just like a political campaign, it's run the same way and some of the same tactics apply and it's very high-energy. this is a very sophisticated, broad-based, well-funded attempt to essentially overturn the secretary of defense's decision to kill the crusader program. poussaint: meanwhile, united defense
as a terrorist organization. should washington be concerned about israel's role in the conflict. >> reporter: anderson, it's impossible to say what egypt's role is at this point. it is not clear at this point if the fiery rhetoric is just rhetoric or if there's something beyond that or prepare for example more drastic measures. i think we'll find out in the days and weeks to come, but people in washington are listening to this explosive rhetoric and they are concerned, but if you look carefully there's not much happening beyond the rhetoric. i don't think egypt can describe this and viewed as extreme, belligerent departure from the past and they certainly haven't taken arms against israel will and providing material support to hamas and they've come out and said loud and clear that we're going to abide by the camp david accords, the peace accords between camp david and israel and these are all early indications that president morsi has taken a calculated decision and not to disrupt the alliances that are in place and it should come as a relief right now to washington and tel aviv and it coul
with the the argument going in. that argument remains unsettled in washington today and that is the doubt i think you're picking up on your question. >> i'll make several comments. i'm working backwards on yours, you know, i look at it this way. the united states has the capability in this period in time, but secondly it's the united states that has taken the responsibility and step forward. i can't come to another country but to take that responsibility. david is the approaches in dealing with responsibility and more cost effective ways. having said that, i would argue there is going to be a big debate over this issue because there are many different ways of advanced team strategic interests. i flip to the first question on diplomacy development and defense. i think many of you know when certain members of congress here would get the question tears at a festival amount of foreign aid we give abroad than the fact is that under some 1%. why mention that that hence the question that investment is a form of leadership and investment in stabilizing other areas and it does matter and does fit in the diplo
.d... well, we worked hard for those benefits. we earned them. and if washington tries to cram decisions about the future... of these programs into a last minute budget deal... we'll all pay the price. aarp is fighting to protect seniors with responsible... solutions that strengthen medicare and... social security for generations to come. we can do better than a last minute deal... that would hurt all of us. >>> in gaza tonight, the mood is very tense. israeli is poised to begin a ground attack if they get the go-ahead. israel has been pounding gaza with missile strikes in retaliation for ongoing rocket attacks by hamas. we got a notion of how intense the bombing in gaza is, and we were talking to a palestinian man -- excuse me, in gaza and another man in ashkelon. watch. >> when you hear him say that, when you hear him describe the situation where he is, what goes through your mind? >> sorry. carry on with your question. >> we're having -- [ indiscernible ] >> that was mohammed suleman, his connection was cut off a moment or two later. he joins us now. muhammad, you gave our viewers on
